Welcome to our website.  We hope that you find it full of useful information and that you enjoy sharing our children’s learning and achievements.  The year group pages provide details of topics which our pupils have studied and their current curriculum areas.  Additionally, you will find the children’s homework activities on these pages.

You may also like to view the ‘School News’ section.  We moved into our new school building in 2013 and pictures of our wonderful school building and grounds can be viewed as well as photos of the children engaged in their learning.


We were delighted with the results of our last Ofsted inspection which highlighted the hard work of the children and staff.  The full report can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Ofsted Report’ tab on our Home page.  Thank you to the many parents who have said that they felt that the published report reflected what they had already known about the school.  New documents, which we hope you will find useful, have also been uploaded onto the ‘School Admin’ pages and we hope that you are able to find all the information you require.


If you have further questions about our school contact the staff in the school office who will be happy to help you (admin@albertthegreat.herts.sch.uk) .

Prayer of the Month:

St Patrick's Breastplate

Christ with me,
 Christ before me,
 Christ behind me,
 Christ in me,
 Christ beneath me,
 Christ above me,
 Christ on my right,
 Christ on my left,
 Christ when I lie down,
 Christ when I sit down,
 Christ when I arise,
 Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
 Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
 Christ in every eye that sees me,
 Christ in every ear that hears me.
